20 Oct Year 11 Composers’ Concert
The first ever Highbury Grove Composers’ Concert took place on Thursday 15 October.
The evening was comprised of 17 original pieces of music written by the Year 11 GCSE students which were performed by the students and the Music Department staff. The pieces spanned a wide range of genres: classical string quartets, experimental minimalist pieces, jazz ensembles and a rock song all featured. Several parents said that they had been moved to tears (in a good way) by the performances and Mr Sherrington declared it to be one of the best school music events he had ever been to. The performances were all recorded and there will be a CD on sale before the Christmas holidays. The Music Department are incredibly proud of all of the Year 11s – an amazing achievement all round!
